Entry Level Math Test

All entering CSU undergraduates admitted to a CSU campus are required, unless exempt, to take the Entry Level Math Test (ELM).

The ELM is not an admission test. The ELM is a placement test that will enable your CSU campus to find out whether you need remedial courses in mathematics before undertaking college level work requiring these fundamental skills. This is why you must take the ELM before enrollment in the CSU.
